Quilt Camp Suggested Packing List:

Quilt Camp 


Held 5 times each year from 9am to 5pm each day, Quilt Camp is when members gather to quilt, eat and gab. We meet in the Cartersville Civic Center with our sewing machines and current projects ready to get to work (or play). Come for one day or all five, it’s entirely up to you. And since you can leave your machine all set up in our secure, locked room the coming and going is easy and convenient. Camp is a great time to get help or advice about a project, lay out a big quilt top to prep for quilting or just sit back and relax with fun ladies!

Here’s our suggested packing list:

  • dress in layers. It’s difficult to keep everyone happy with one thermostat

  • sewing machine

  • extension cord/power strip

  • personal trash can/bag

  • design wall (or tablecloth)  and clothes pins to hang it. great for viewing your layouts

  • current project

  • sewing supplies for your current project (rotary cutter, ruler, scissors, seam ripper, thread, extra bobbins, pins, needles, spray starch)

  • lunch, snacks, travel coffee mug (we have a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. if you prefer to drink tea, bring your favorite!)


Although these things are provided, many members prefer to bring their own:

  • comfortable chair

  • additional lighting

  • iron/small ironing surface

  • cutting mat (we do not provide a rotary cutter)

If you'd like to sign up for quilt camp, you can do so in person at the guild meeting the month before the camp, or at your convenience by email below...
